Call SERVPRO Restorers in North Kingston to Help You With The Fire Damage Restoration Process

When a house fire occurs, homeowners are often left stranded about what to do. The soot and smoke residues spread extensively even to unaffected areas of your North Kingston home. If ignored for an extended period, the residues can begin to discolor surfaces, and odors may continue to become more potent.

Can smoke residues get into my HVAC system?
Fire damage in your North Kingston property can spread even to areas you cannot expect. During the fire incident, your HVAC system may collect and retain moisture, smoke, and gaseous emissions, among other contaminants. This can happen even when your HVAC system is not operating. It can affect the air quality of your property and the operations of the HVAC system.

At SERVPRO, we have certified indoor air professionals who have decades of experience and access to advanced duct cleaning systems equipped with the necessary tools to inspect your HVAC system. The duct-cleaning package includes a strong vacuum and an efficient filtering system. The vacuum pulls contaminants and soils into the filtering system that prevents residues and bacteria from being reintroduced into the indoor environment.

What damage can smoke residues cause?
Even after containing a small fire in your property, some surfaces can suffer staining and discoloration. If the situation is ignored for more than 48 hours, the ash and soot produced by the fire can discolor surfaces such as:

    •    Ceilings
    •    Vinyl
    •    Wood
    •    Walls

Besides, soot can also etch and corrode materials such as metal and glass. The corrosion can affect your home’s structural integrity. Hiring SERVPRO’s professional restorers within 48 hours can reduce the chances of permanent smoke damage occurring.

How can you remove the smoke odor?
Smoke lingers in confined surfaces like furniture, clothes, and upholstery. No matter the size of a fire in your property, the odor can be intense and last for an extended period. Without the right cleaning techniques and deodorization, the smell can infect your valuable items and the structure. That can make it difficult for you and your family to live in the property. If you intend to sell your property in the future, the odor can reduce its value.

Since the fire started in the kitchen, our professionals can use an enzyme digester, which works effectively on protein materials to eliminate the smell. The product breaks down protein molecules into simple, soluble substances that bacteria can absorb. We can also run air scrubbers to improve the air quality in your home.
